Be afraid, be very afraid. My mind is wandering all over the place and I just never know where it will end up. With that being said, be prepared for an overdose of randomness.
I am loving the new "real woman" celebrities I am seeing. There seems to be this renaissance going on where women who are making money have decided running their business is more important than being a size 2 and that they are done with all the crazy diets. AMEN! GLORY BE TO GOD . . . AND CUPCAKES!
Lady Gaga recently gained 25 lbs (though she isn't wearing it the best) and people went crazy. Her response: I lvoe to eat and I have been eating with my family and enjoying life. Khloe Kardashian has always gotten flack for being the biggest of the Kardashian sisters. I love her because she is real, she is an Amazon (5'9) and she has always had the attitude, SCREW YOU BECAUSE MY MAN LOVES IT! Christina Aguilera's management team "suggested" that she lose 50 lbs. She "suggested" that they mind their own damn business because she is making all of them rich. GO GIRL! Now the only problem I have with the new Christina is her styling. Everytime I watch The Voice I think, "What in the hell is she wearing?" She doesn't know how to dress a full figure and her makeup only makes her face look plumper.
Why do they have her looking like a hip-hop drag queen????
Anyway I have become addicted to clementines. Cuties to be specific.
I don't know what the difference is between them and mandarin oranges but I just love them. They are so easy to peel and eat. I can have three of them for 105 calories. I have been devouring them! YUM!!!
I have been reading blogs and visiting pages of some very successful Sparkies, most of which are my Sparkfriends: BOBCATGIRL76, CJADERUN, ADARKARA, MISSB8604, and SHRINKING_SARA just to name a few (becuase there are a ton of successful Sparkies that I have run across) and it got me to thinking: What will I look like when I hit my goal? You see, I have never been below 224 lbs (not since the 9th grade) and so I have no recolection of a time when I didn't see myself as morbidly obese. I look at their Before pictures and I could have never imagined they would look the way they look just by staring at those pics. They all look like totally different people (and gorgeous). Specifically I was looking at BOBCATGIRL76's picture blog and she posted a before pic of her mid-section. I have always struggled with this area and even after losing 46 lbs, I am not happy with the way it looks. Well I looked at her Before section and was taken aback at her Current pic in a sports bra and shorts. Her tummy is completely flat! She has lost 91 lbs. I told myself that I don't have to be disappointed with my tummy for long if I keep working hard. I just can't wait to meet the woman that I am becoming.
So a weird thing has happened and I would like your take on it. When I first got my BodyBugg I was 40 lbs heavier than I am currently. When I worked out I would burn 12 to 16 calories a minute. As I lost weight, that slowly reduced. For the past two months or so, I would workout like crazy and then upload my Bugg and see that I only burned between 4 and 8 calories a minute. I was so pissed! As you know I have been incorporating HIIT training into my workouts and I still do my Zumba. Well in the past two weeks I noticed that I am back up to burning about 12 calories per minute consistently throughout my workout. It is so weird because I was still doing Zumba, dancing and while I wasn't doing HIIT training yet, I was putting in cardio regularly. I wonder why the change has come though I have gotten lighter. Whatever it is, I want to keep it up.
Well I think that is all for now. Before I go, a funny for you:
